What a wonderful word of the day, television, our friend, our enemy, our all around entertainment center. So often I have turned to the television for comfort when I lay fighting pain, I look to the television for a program to watch to take my mind off of that pain, but never have I found a program that will ease my pain. As many television programs as there are, there are just none that will take my pain away from me when I need it to. But I call the television my friend, instead of my enemy. Often I listen to it while trying to fall asleep, when every little thing I’ve every done wrong in my whole life is bearing down on me. A sure sign of depression. The television eases my mind if I concentrate on the words coming out of it’s speaker and not the words running around in my head.
I find the television necessary to keep up with the weather and the news, a good laugh, a good cry, a good companion when my mind needs one when I am alone. Other times, I don’t need the television at all! I think it is just an idiot box. I forget how important it is to me and call it names, turn it off and let it sit and collect dust while I surf the internet on my computer, but soon my eyes become tired and weary. I can’t find the satisfaction on the internet that I find from the television. I’m too old to be able to settle for the internet. I grew up with the television and there lies my loyalty. I know that everything I find on the television is on the internet, but I don’t know exactly where to find it.
And I can watch television when I am in a brain fog, when nothing really matters if I remember it or not. But when I’m on the internet, I want to remember what I read and what I do so I can return to it and finish it up. But on the television it can just run and run and nonsense can come out of it and I can sit or lie down and never absorb anything that comes from it if I so choose.
I think it is my friend for sure. It might be a child’s enemy, but for me, with an invisible illness, it is a friend. I call on it often to sooth me to sleep, to calm my nerves, to keep me company, to entertain me. I will be keeping the television around.
Stay positive in all you do and try to feel good today! ~ Tina
Yesterday was a difficult day. I felt out of control. I bought a new Dell computer with Windows 10 and it is still blowing my mind. I like things the way I like them, so I can find what I’m looking for easily and Windows 10 is a booger at letting me have things my way. I started developing a migraine last night and had to set it aside, but thankfully, the migraine did not materialize and I only have a mild headache.
I still have a problem with the new PC or Windows 10 as it is. I do not like the bar across the top that offers a search, or fast browsing and I do not know how to get rid of it. I googled it and followed those instructions without any luck.
If you can tell me how to get rid of that bar I would greatly appreciate it. So far Windows 10 is not my friend, but the new PC is very fast and I’m slowly getting it organized.
